Being a fan of the original MitoQ serum and capsules already, I was eager to jump at the chance to review MitoQ’s expanded new skin care line. The collection includes a day serum, day cream, night serum and night cream. The product I tested is the MitoQ Skin Boosting Active Night Cream ($145), which according to their website does three main things: revitalizes, brightens and restructures the skin. Timing-wise, I was just about to place an order for the original serum since I missed using it. The original serum did wonders for my skin and even helped fade age spots and areas of pigmentation. Nearing the age of 50 and going through one of the roughest years of my life on top of peri-menopause, my skin was in need of a “boost.”

After using MitoQ Skin Boosting Active Night Cream for thirty days, I remember why I loved the original serum so much. This night cream is very much like the serum in consistency and nearly the same color, although with a bit more of a yellowish cast. It blends well with other creams and serums, so layering isn’t a problem. I also appreciate that it doesn’t have a strong scent either.

The list of ingredients is — as expected — impressive. It has a line-smoothing peptide in it, called Matrixyl Synthe’6, that regulates cell activity, tissue repair and collagen remodeling. It also includes their signature ingredient, Mitoquinol Mesylate (MitoQ), which boosts mitochondria (or, from what I understand, energy makers) in skin cells. Some other beneficial ingredients to note: Moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid, vitamin A from rosehips (said to be gentler than retinol), phytosterols (which encourage new collagen production) and anti-inflammatory chamomile CO2.

The two ingredients that really stood out to me were the prodizia and chamomile, since these tie in with Marta’s recent article about skin aging and inflammation. Internally, I’m doing a lot of detoxing now (currently taking MitoQ Liver capsules) and focusing on “gut health.” Basically, I am working to understand and treat the damage that oxidative stress can do inside and outside, which MitoQ makes note of on their packaging.   

Anyway, I can honestly say that my skin feels softer and looks more refreshed since using. Some of my stubborn age spots and areas of pigmentation are improving. My skin looks a tad brighter and there has been some tightening, too, especially around my mouth and jawline. As for wrinkles, I haven’t seen a major improvement but have seen subtle changes (which could be from an overall tightening). Another bonus is that my skin doesn’t seem as dry as it used to. To me, this cream is definitely a winner, and I’m going to want to try the other products now. However, I would caution against hoping for overnight miracles. Anything working on the mitochondria is done for the long haul. And sure, you may have to shell out a bit more money, but your skin will thank you for it.

    PamiK thank goodness for your gimlet eye! We were emailed the wrong ingredients list by MitoQ (I think an early version). I have replaced it with the correct one.

    I'm curious to know if some of the ingredients mentioned by the reviewer are in secret code under the Ingredients List?
    I didn't see Matrixyl Synthe'6, chamomile CO2, Prodizia or Vitamin A. Under the official list of ingredients I did, however, see
    niacinamide, a worthy mention.
